Knit vs. Crochet

The ongoing drama(?) of a girl torn between two obsessions with too little time.

Mack Goods


It's official. The Etsy store has taken over my life. I check it obsessively, I list things daily, and I have an ever-growing stash of polymer clay foods. I spent the afternoon working on a custom order (8 bacon stitch markers) and putting together promo materials (charms, business cards).
Should I have been streaming a lecture on gastrointestinal neoplasms? Yes.
Did I? No.
Above is a collage of some of the things I've been making lately. It's interesting to me how the store has developed and taken new directions in a manner which almost indicates to me a life of its own...random ideas for new things to make pop into my head at night before I fall asleep, and I'm compelled to make them. Some are hits, some are misses. It's a fun time. Oh. What's in the picture, you ask? Clockwise from upper left: Fresh Grass Yarn Necklace, Carrot Earrings (as yet unlisted), Luna Bird Necklace, Fried Egg Hairpins, Tiny Lime Hairpins (just listed, and just sold!), Pearly Lining earrings (unlisted).

The grass necklace is pretty- what's it made with? Floss?

Thanks! It's actually made with a picture of green yarn embedded in clay. Shh, don't tell anyone.

the "yarn" pendants are brilliant! If you don't mind me asking, where did you find transparent clay? I've never seen such a thing!

There's translucent clay which you can roll very thin and glaze to get a pretty transparent effect, or there's also TLS--transparent liquid sculpey, which works great at encasing pendants like this!
